What a Bore
Wow, this has got to be one of the worse films made in the 1930s. I guess if you're a huge fan of political movies you may find it almost bearable. The reviewers below seemed to like it though, so maybe it just wasn't my cup of tea.

Whatever.(rolling eyes) idiots everywhere these days.
Yes I agree; the politics need to be left to the political blogs. There's no place for them here. I come here to enjoy fun old movies.
Having said that, I would like to say that this movie is worth the view. Not a "great" flick but a good one.
And that last scene with the finger was a bit of a surprise considering the vintage of the flick....

I usually just comment on the film itself,since this WAS a political film I felt as if a nice little jab was in order. Sorry you disagree. I usually stick to movies,but when the movie is about politics then a comment regarding todays politics is not so out of the ordinary. Anyway,I will post as I please thank you. Just like television..if you dont like what you see..turn the channel..or in this case,go on to the next review.

This is not a political forum.
I watch and download these movies as a form
of entertainment and to get away from the
daily barrage of politics and endless strife
that we are subjected to every day of our lives.
Please keep your political comments to yourself.
I don't want to read it and it has no place here.
If your political agendas are so prevalent in
your thoughts, then get a soap box and go out
on a street corner to espouse your views. Stop
screwing up this wonderful site.

Hardy boys meet Nancy Drew in the Mysterious Bullet
This was kind of a weird one trying to incorporate too many styles. From the outset of the credits the music (which there was no attempt at after the credits) didn't quite correspond with what I expected to be a little heavier than the raw-raw-sis-boom-bah chosen to intro the flick.
But it pretty much sums it up, what with the fairly stiff bad stage type acting and a conclusion to rival even Dr. Watson's elementry science lessons.
But I got a real kick when the reporter makes a point to flip the bird at the washed up political hack on the way out of the office! I had to rewind to be sure, but he makes a grand enough gesture that's hard to miss! The hour or so before was almost worth the wait.

uglygeorge, you're a riot
Whichever political party holds the seat of power, they're a magnet for those interested in the various uses and abuses of power. Sure, most of the political gangsters ofthe 30s were Demos, but that's far from true today.
Watch this movie, and then consider Bush's reluctance to can criminals Rove and Cheney. Think it's because they're irreplaceable? Don't make me laff! Unlike the hero of this film, our President is scared s-tless of what the corporate gang would do to him if he threw their game.
